While many books in recent years have addressed the notable ways that popular internet culture and cyber trends such as blogging have democratized the community of information seekers and providers, little research to date has addressed the darker element that has emerged from that same democratic sphere. That is, the huge resurgence and successful transformation of hate groups across cyberspace, and in particular, those that promote white supremacist ideas and causes. A Space for Hate speaks to the media and information topic of hate speech in cyberspace, but more specifically, how its inscribers have adapted their movement into the social networking and information-providing contexts of the modern online community.

Adam Klein's "A Space for Hate: The White Power Movement's Adaptation Into Cyberspace" is a brilliantly written insight into the very real world of white suprematism among today's online community. Klein eloquently sheds light on the topic, exposing antisemitism on the Internet and the many ways it disguises itself within sites visited by young adults and teenagers today. As a teacher in today's society, I strongly recommend this book to anyone who uses the Internet on a daily basis or who has friends, children, siblings, or students who could be at risk to the exposure of this current epidemic. Adam Klein is a fantastic author and I use this book to educate my high school students on the white supremacist movement during our Holocaust unit each year. It is so refreshing to read a book that draws upon the issues that face youths today. Five stars!!!
